Description

Francisco Espina formed part of a motorcycle patrol with Antonio Gómez Osuna. On 15 April they were on Calle Heraclio Fournier identifying a number of people. An ETA collaborator had previously called the police headquarters in Vitoria to report that a number of young drug addicts were shooting up at the scene. When the officers arrived, three members of the terrorist organization came out of a bar, approached them and opened fire from point-blank range. They were killed instantly.
